Who started the newspaper Deenbandhu?

Krishnarao Pandurang, Bhalekar It was India's first newspaper that specifically targeted the working class. The weekly articulated the peasants' and workers' complaints. Krishnarao Pandurang Bhalekar (1850–1910) created Deenbandhu as an avenue for Jotirao Phule's Satyashodhak Samaj. He published his first issue on 1 January 1853.

Phule wrote editorials for the paper, which included criticisms of social injustice. This angered the publishers at the time, who fired him from his job as a school teacher. However, this did not stop him from writing for the paper later on. Phule focused on issues such as poverty, unemployment, and famine that affected the poor farmers and laborers of India. He called for equal rights for all Indians and protested against various forms of discrimination including casteism and untouchability.

In addition to editing and writing for the paper, Phule also sold his own drawings in it. These illustrations were often based on current events that he had witnessed first-hand. One example is a series of sketches he made after visiting the United States in 1866–67. Phule wanted to learn about industrialization from Americans and used his trip as an opportunity to observe how they managed their businesses.

Deenbandhu reached a wide readership among both elites and the oppressed classes. It is estimated that up to 10,000 copies were printed each week during its peak circulation period between 1853 and 1870.

Who started the Dinbandhu newspaper?

Krishnarao Pandurang, Bhalekar was born on April 5, 1866 in Khandala, near Bombay (now Mumbai). His father was a wealthy lawyer who had his own practice and some land. When Krishnarao was eleven years old, his father died. Since then, he had to work for a living.

He grew up reading newspapers and books about politics, law, and society. This interest in politics and public affairs led him to join the Indian National Congress when he came of age. The main opposition party at the time was the Muslim League, which wanted India to be an Islamic state. Krishnarao wanted to build a modern country that would protect all its people without any discrimination based on religion or caste.

He worked as a journalist for several newspapers before starting his own publication in 1890. It was called Dinabandhu (Friend of the People) and it had many famous writers as contributors. Among them were Dinkar Shivram Joshi, who wrote under the pen name "Dinanath Mangeshkar"; Savitribai Phadnis; and Rammohan Roy.

Who was the first Bengali newspaper publisher in India?

Samachar Darpan was India's first Bengali newspaper. It was published in the early part of the nineteenth century by the Baptist Missionary Society and the Baptist Missionary press in Serampore.

Nowadays, many newspapers are published in Bengal including those in Bangla and English. There are also magazines published in Bengali such as Janapada and Prabasi.

Bengal has been a major center of education and learning for centuries. This is evident from the fact that many educational institutions were established in this region by British missionaries and government officials to provide free education for men. Today, Bengal has many universities and colleges where students can get quality education.

Bengal is also the home of modern science. Many scientists have come out of Bengal including Rabindranath Tagore who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913. He is known for his songs and poems which focus on peace, love, and spirituality.

Who started the newspaper Prabhakar?

Ishwar Chandra Gupta started the Bengali daily newspaper Sangbad Prabhakar (also known as Sangbad Prabhakar, Bengali: sNbaad prbhaakr). In 1831, it began as a weekly newspaper and eight years later, in 1839, it became a daily. The motto of the paper was "Organ of Enlightenment".

Gupta wanted to provide news about society and politics in Bengal. So, he decided to publish a newspaper that would cover all aspects of life in modern-day Bangladesh. He approached prominent people for articles and used any opportunity he got to criticize the government. This made him many enemies who tried hard to stop the newspaper from being published but they failed.

In 1849, the newspaper was banned by the British government because it had criticism against them. But soon after its launch, it became popular among the people of Bengal and was found in several cities across India. In 1951, Sangbad Prabhakar had a circulation of more than 100,000 copies. Today, it is one of the most respected newspapers in Bangladesh, with a daily circulation of over 200,000 copies.

Gupta's son Charucon moved the newspaper to Calcutta (now Kolkata) where it remained for three decades. In 1882, Charucon died at the young age of 39. He was buried on the grounds of his newspaper office.
